European soccer association UEFA has approved the capping of ticket prices for away fans in the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League, effective immediately.
Ticket prices for away fans will be capped at a maximum of €70 ($76.90) in the Champions League and €45 ($49) in the Europa League. According to UEFA, these prices represent the level of the lowest category ticket price at both tournaments’ finals, respectively.
“This new regulation complements the existing rule which stipulates that the price of tickets for supporters of the visiting team must not exceed the price paid for tickets of a comparable category that are sold to supporters of the home team (excluding tickets available to season tickets holders, persons who are members of a supporters’ club or tickets sold as part of a promotional package),” the UEFA announcement states.
Commenting on the introduction of the ticket price cap, UEFA President Aleksander Čeferin said:
“Fans are the lifeblood of the game and those who follow their teams to away matches must have access to tickets at a reasonable price, bearing in mind the cost they have already had to incur for their trip.
“By capping ticket prices, we want to make sure that away fans can still travel to games and play their part in making the atmosphere inside football stadiums so special.”
